trend alert // Collared & Sweaters + Bargains

I am all about style. That’s why I have close to 2,000 pins on my “the girly in me” board on Pinterest. There’s something about a well put together outfit that just makes me happy. One of my favorite trends this season is the collared shirt under a sweater look, often put with a statement necklace. Although I didn’t add a statement necklace to this outfit, you can often find me wearing one, as I’m sure you’ll find to be true. But I absolutely love this look. It’s polished, stylish, and warm. And warm is VERY important when it comes to New England weather. Here I paired my Forever 21 plaid shirt and sweater with Steve Madden (my FAVORITE shoe designer by the way) combat boots. {Side note: My plaid shirt I actually got in the men’s department of Forever 21. I was looking for an oversized one and this one was perfect! Don’t be afraid to look in the men’s section of any store – I have a couple shirts that are men’s. No shame!!}

Right now would probably be a good time to mention that I am a bargain shopper. I don’t usually splurge large amounts of money on just a few items. That being said, I scored my Steve Madden boots at TJMaxx for only $70 last Christmas, while they are originally about $150. And I absolutely love them! They are very versatile. In addition, another score was my watch. I’ve been on the hunt for a rose gold watch lately and found one unexpectedly in American Eagle for only $20! They also offer a 5 year warranty on their watches (with limitations). So far it’s held up quite nicely and I’ve gotten many compliments on it. You could splurge on a Michael Kors, or get a nice cheep one and have some change left over.
